Tucklands is an exceptional bespoke country house enjoying a superb elevated position, overlooking a valley towards the Suffolk border, set within landscaped grounds of a predominantly south facing aspect with fine views in all directions. The property has been constructed in a classical Neo-Georgian style with elegant proportions throughout, that combine the luxury of grand country living with the convenience of modern construction and traditional materials.

The dimensions of the property are truly impressive, with 12'6" ceilings throughout the ground floor, six panel doors to all the reception rooms, all of which are 9' high, sash windows throughout with a height of 9', deep moulded skirting boards, intricate architraving and detailed ceiling cornices. The attention to detail is exemplary throughout, with carved stone fireplaces in the principal reception areas, Portuguese limestone flooring to the main reception areas and kitchen.

The entrance door is panelled and glazed with a carved stone surround enhanced by Doric columns and a detailed pediment above. The reception hall is particularly striking, with limestone flooring, and a curved cantilevered limestone staircase, with ornate balustrades, opening to a circular gallery with detailed plaster panels. The dining hall is situated in the centre of the property, with open views to the front gardens and valley beyond, with a door leading to semi-circular steps to the front.. It is the perfect entertaining area, being adjacent to the reception hall, and has a large carved stone fire surround with fluted detailing to the sides and a stone mantelpiece.

The drawing room and morning room provide formal entertaining areas, and are situated on the easterly elevation of the property, and benefit from the same impressive proportions, with the drawing room having an identical fire place to the dining hall which forms an attractive focal point.

The kitchen/breakfast room/day room run the entire depth of the property on the westerly elevation, and have a triple aspect, with a door leading to the terrace, making it ideally suited to large scale gatherings. This room provides perfect informal family space on a day to day basis. The kitchen area is particularly impressive, with built in appliances to include twin Miele ovens, a Siemens induction hob, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and a twin Gaggenau wine cooler, within a bespoke free standing cabinet. There is a substantial island unit with a curved breakfast bar, sinks and tap that provides boiling and chilled water. The breakfast area and day room allow the occupants to fully appreciate the proportions of this stunning room, and there is a generous pantry that adds to the practicality. The remainder of the ground floor comprises a lavishly appointed cloakroom and extensive storage.

The first floor is equally impressive, with a stunning galleried landing and a ceiling heights of 9'8". Fabulous views are provided by three sash windows to the south facing grounds and fields beyond. The semi-circular stairwell is truly impressive, and the principal bedrooms are all accessed via four panel doors. The principal suite is situated on the westerly elevation and runs the entire depth of the property, and has twin dressing rooms, and a lavishly appointed bath/shower room with twin sinks, a rectangular ended bath set within a tiled plinth, and a large walk in shower cubicle. There are three further guest suites on this floor, all with their own individual shower rooms, which provide extensive family space.

The second floor offers greater flexibility for family living, and could readily form a single contained unit if desire. It has a large centrally situated bedroom, which has twin roof lights, and stunning views to the rear via two sash windows. There is a spacious en-suite shower room with matching white suite. This bedroom is flanked by two further equally sized rooms that could provide a multitude of uses, such as games rooms, studies or further sleeping space.

The basement has a separate external access, allowing it to be used as a self contained living area, which is ideally suited to a live in au-pair or home help. Currently the present owners use this area as entertaining space, and as such it is perfectly equipped for this purpose. There is a large reception room, which can be utilised as a sitting room or party room, depending on your preference, which is directly adjacent to a bar area with its own space for relaxing. There is an exceptionally well-appointed kitchen/breakfast room, which is extensively fitted with maple units, with integral appliances to include a Neff oven, Siemens hob, Miele fridge freezer and dishwasher. A substantial bedroom has its own en-suite wet room, and there is a further cloakroom. The remainder of this level comprises a plant/utility room, and a large laundry/storage room.

Tucklands is approached via ornate wrought iron gates which are hung on iron posts and are electrically operated. A sweeping drive, lined with ornamental pear trees winds to the easterly aspect of the grounds and arrives to the rear of the property, providing extensive parking, in front of the detached triple garage, which has electrically operated doors. The grounds to the front of the property slope toward the brook, and there is a large pond providing a focal point, which has a small copse to one end. There is further planting to the sides of the drive, which includes attractive silver birch trees and mature hedge boundaries, with the remainder comprising large expanses of lawn.

Immediately adjacent to the westerly elevation of the property, and accessed via the kitchen/breakfast room is a delightful stone terrace, which is bordered by neatly clipped topiary laurel bushes, which provides fantastic family entertaining space, which is enhanced by an undercover seating area, which benefits from delightful views across the grounds and valley.

More importantly it provides complete privacy and backs directly onto open farmland, and there is a natural pond in the south westerly corner.
